This morning bright and early Matt had a meeting with one of the head honchos at our place......... Every year the reps get the 'budget talks'.
So Shawn, Liberty and I headed out just after 8am. We walked up to Grandmas where Liberty stayed for the morning. Shawn and I headed over to the school. I displayed some photos of "Jungle" in the foyer. It is quite a fun display. While there I got asked to take some more photos today of a dance group that was to perform at the assembly. So I had a lovely morning over at the school.
This photo is of a 'Christmas Conversation Starter' that I made awhile back. It was made using some Kaiser products that was sent to me in a kit from Julie's Scrapping Jewels. Julie has actually closed the shop until the new year. She is busy with her new bundle of joy. I took this box to dinner for my work Christmas party. It is filled with little questions about how you spend your Christmas. Thinks like 'What is your favourite Christmas food?' ' Favourite Christmas Song' things like that. Anyway it made for great conversation, better than talking about work stuff all night!

Over the weekend we had some wild weather, perfect indoor weekend. So Matt climbed into the roof and dragged down the Christmas boxes. Saturday evening we spent 3 hours putting the tree together. Sunday we spent the morning decorating the rest of the house. I must say I really enjoyed decorating this year. Both Shawn and Liberty are a lovely Christmas ages.
Today Liberty and I spent the morning in Armidale. I needed to get some photos printed, the rest of the time we just wondered around, stopped for a donut. We had a lovely girly time.
This afternoon we planted the veggie garden. Beans, Tomato varieties, Spinach, Strawberries and some herbs. Still a few gaps to fill. Shawn's girlfriend also helped... it was a lovely bonding session for us all :)

Today Mickey Mouse turns 80 years young. What a party that would be at his house!
This morning I had morning tea with some of my wonderful friends...THANK YOU for the yummy cake Meg, sorry you couldn't enjoy it with us x
This afternoon it was time for more cake, this time with my Mum and Grandmother.
Because I hadn't eaten much today... We went to Armidale for dinner at the White Bull. I think this is my new favourite place to eat out in town.
The rest of this week is pretty busy. Sorry if I don't make it back. :)

This is the view from our hotel room last weekend. Our room was one floor under the dining room, so this was also the view while we had some meals. This photo was taken approx 8am. Apparently this Bay is twice the size of Sydney Harbour.

Well since my last post we have all been very busy!
Thursday Shawn had his school Halloween disco. He dressed as the fantastic Captain Jack Sparrow. He wore the wig we coveted from Disneyland and I made the vest and belts, quick and easy!The primary dance finished at 7pm but I stayed on to supervise the secondary students. It was a good night!
Friday was a bit of running around in the morning ready to kick back for the afternoon. The wonderful Miss Walsh (Shawn's teacher last year) and Pam came for afternoon tea. We had a lovely afternoon. Tanya is taking a teaching position in Dubai next year.... she will be missed!
Saturday I worked in the morning. That evening we had 18 for a BBQ dinner. It was great! So easy. Each family supplied their meat and a salad to share. Add to that the nibbles and we could have easily fed another 18! Only 3 casualties. Nash ran full throttle into the glass sliding door. Door is fine, Nash has a large bump on his forehead. It doesn't look to bad because you can't see it for all the hair! :) Next up was my carpet and Megs pants.... Rach decided to throw coke all over Meg... Not really, it was a total accident, but that makes for a dull story. :) Love you Rach x
Today. My wonderful children slept in past 8am!!! We bummed around for awhile, Matt woke up with a nasty head cold. About 10am we thought we would clean the carpets (as mentioned above) We just hire the ones from the supermarkets and do them ourselves. So for under $50 we did all of our house the couch and dining chairs. Then I went up to my Grandmothers and did all of her rugs and 2 big rooms. Then I did Mum's rugs and carpet. I am really impressed at how well our dining chairs came up. Now Matt and I are exhausted. I don't know about him, but I am off to bed very soon.
Before I go, I had a scrapbook win! If you would like to see the page click on this link.
